Double your fun
This review is for both Disk 1 and Disk 2 of Live Spring 2003. Apparently these constitute a 2-CD album, a complilation from 4 live performances. Don't know if it was actually released, but it's certainly release quality material.
This is a creatively versatile band. Mostly rock, with sizeable portions of jam, jazz, funk, bluegrass, and the kitchen sink. All very well blended. Exceptional performances. Superb sound quality. This is thoroughly entertaining music.
I'm not sure how I feel about compilations like this, or even if they belong in the archive, since I have a strong bias for listening to entire concerts. I guess so, since it is all live music. In any case, this pair is bias-killer for me. I'll be listening to it a lot.
